What is Texas caviar? Well, unlike it’s namesake, it has nothing whatsoever to do with fish eggs, thankfully!

Texas caviar is a salad of beans, corn, black-eyed peas, and other ingredients, often eaten as a dip accompaniment to tortilla chips. You can also think of it like an jacked-up black bean and corn salsa. Texas caviar is good any time as a snack, part of an appetizer or a party food.

Here is a Texas caviar recipe that will add some life to your feeding frenzy!

Texas Caviar Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can black eye peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can white or shoepeg corn, drained
  • 6 Roma tomatoes (I used 5 on-the-vine)
  • 8 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow or red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1.5 Tbsp jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 2 Tbsp dried cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian dressing
  • Tortilla chips or Frito Scoops for dipping

Texas Caviar Recipe Directions:

Mix all the veggies together. Rub the cilantro in you palm before adding to the veggies. It makes it a little more flavorful. Add the salad dressing, stir and chill overnight. Serve with Frito Scoops or tortilla chips.
